"Referencing Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Foucault, this thought-provoking book shows that the history of Western jurisprudence until the era of Utilitarianism dealt with the relationship of law to justice, of the temporal to the eternal. . . . Marianne Constable seems to suggest that moments of contemplation enable us to be grasped by the justice of transcendence."--Choice
"[Just Silences] is a probing recognition and response to the 'social fact' that now 'law is power.'"--Linda Ross Meyer, Law and Literature
From the Inside Flap
""Just Silences" is truly a work of astounding brilliance. It has influenced my thinking about my field permanently. Constable has a way of backing you into really extraordinary insights about the contemporary legal culture we occupy, and the project of knowledge and power that so many of us in sociolegal studies are engaged in. Her book will echo in discussions across a broad intersection of law, the humanities, and social science."--Jonathan Simon, Professor of Law, University of California, Berkeley, coauthor of "Cultural Analysis, Cultural Studies, and the Law"
